Technology Convergence Driving the Development of Sustainable Crop Protection Solutions

Over the last two decades, the agriculture industry has dealt with challenges pertaining to rapid climate change, biodiversity loss, global population growth rate, and water scarcity. The ongoing changes in the agriculture industry have created a lucrative growth opportunity for agrochemical technology developers, as agricultural chemicals are perceived to increase output by improving productivity and controlling pests.

As conventional agrochemicals contribute to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, technology developers are focusing on sustainable agrochemicals that promise to reduce GHG emissions.

This research service focuses on identifying and analyzing agricultural innovation pertaining to crop protection management through sustainable agrochemicals. The agrochemicals covered in the study include fertilizers, pesticides, and seed treatment chemicals for nutrition/weed management, pest management, and disease management. The primary focus is to find the most promising technologies that can address challenges related to the use of conventional agrochemicals and enable large-scale commercial production of sustainable agrochemicals.

The research team has identified three key agrochemical technologies that have tremendous potential on driving sustainability in crop protection management:

  1. Fertilizers: (enhance efficiency fertilizers and upcycling fertilizers);
  2. Pesticides: (biopesticides); and
  3. Seed Treatment: (seed coatings/encapsulation).

Research efforts focus on the adoption of nanotechnology and natural-based material that will improve agrochemical characteristics and sustainability.
